24/7 mental health crisis line

Call NHS 111 and select the mental health option

Call NHS 111 and select the mental health option to be connected to a 24/7 mental health crisis line. The service is also known locally as the Sussex Mental Healthline. 

A mental health crisis is when someone feels at 'breaking point'.  It can disrupt usual thought patterns, mood, daily activities and feelings. People in crisis will usually need support quickly.  


 Is your life in danger?

If you have seriously harmed yourself – for example, by taking a drug overdose – or you feel that you may be about to harm yourself, call 999 for an ambulance or go straight to A&E.

Or ask someone else to call 999 or take you to A&E.
